well i have heard that people have caught muskrat in rat traps so i had an idea to make a muskrat sized thick metal retangular frame to hit the rat and kill it.now i am waiting till the convention to pick up some cheap springs for it.i am thinking of buying some #1 1/2 spring.
what do u think i should use?

If you want to try and make one, all the power to you. Make sure to post pics of the trap and catch pictures when your done!

MTP makes a rectangular conibear that's kind of like the 660 except it is 12" x 16" and I think it has breaker bars.

like this ? smile




i made that a couple years ago, i ended up changing the rope into a dowel rod, and taking the sliver of carpet off, it worked good, i dont know if it worked on animals or not, i bet it could have taken out squirrels and rabbits but thats it
